If you’re looking for a fresh sound with all the throw-back feels, search no more. With her captivating vocals and a unique blend of sounds throughout five tracks, Megan Knight brings listeners her highly anticipated EP, My Drama. Each song will take you away to a place, getting lost in the music. The relatable lyrics take the listener through each stage of grief after a relationship ends – denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and finally acceptance. So grab a glass of dark wine and let each song take you away…
The song is a unique mix of 80’s beats and soft rock. Megan’s mature vocals bring a sense of empowerment to the lyrics. “We all have demons and trauma in our lives. ‘My Drama’ is a song about finding the one person that can deal with all of that; the absolute depth of your soul inside and out,” shares Megan. Read my review of the music video that brought the song to life here:
“Hard Way To Go”
Hop in the car and crank this song up on an open highway. Megan’s vocals really shine through as she sings along to the soft rock beat with accents of the electric guitar whaling. The song captures the feeling of striking out on your own with an uncertain future, paving your path without a clear map to follow.
Escaping from the feeling of heartbreak can be difficult to do. Megan sings in a soulful voice of wanting to numb the pain. The music slows down in this third track, but doesn’t captivate any less. All the feels rush through every lyric and touch of the piano key.
“Easy To Forget”
Turning it back up a notch, you can stand up and sway with your wine glass in hand. “Easy To Forget” brings a sense of empowerment in moving on. Singing of a time when she felt lost, her powerful vocals give a don’t-mess-with-me vibe because she was trapped, but is finding freedom from the war inside her mind.
“Take It To The Grave”
When you come to terms with a love being one-sided, there are some words you take to the grave. Megan sings of things being better left unsaid, with a broken heart she will go on living life. They will never know what she really wanted to say as Megan keeps it to herself. The piano melody and heartfelt vocals will make you feel the haunting she encounters in choosing to stay silent.
As I listened to Megan’s My Drama EP all the way through, it touched every feeling to the core. In addition to her jaw-dropping vocals, the lyrics are thoughtfully crafted and paired to take the listener on a journey from heartbreak through all the stages of grief. I can’t wait to see where this release takes Megan in her career as listeners experience the work of art that is this collection of songs.
About Megan: She is an incredibly soulful and impassioned singer-songwriter, born in Southern New Jersey. The poised influence of her writing reveals a powerful singer willing to risk what it takes to push the limits as far as they will go. Megan’s music is strongly defined by its contradiction; which radiates with confidence and vulnerabilities that outline a perfect balance between modern and classic sounds, that pull inspiration from many different genres.
